Wing Luke Museum

The mission of the Wing Luke Museum is to connect everyone to the rich history, dynamic cultures and art of the Asian Pacific Americans through vivid storytelling and inspiring experiences. As a National Park Service Affiliated Area and the first Smithsonian affiliate in the Pacific Northwest, the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience offers an authentic perspective on a unique version of the American story. Nationally recognized for their work in creating dynamic, community-driven exhibitions and programs, they put their community at the heart of each exhibition they create. The stories you see and hear within their walls are authentic experiences and perspectives. From the struggles of early Asian pioneers to accomplished works by national Asian Pacific American artists, their contributions give us a look at what it means to be uniquely American. The 60,000 square foot facilities offers three floors to tell their communities’ stories, with contemporary galleries showcasing both temporary and permanent exhibitions as well as preserved historic spaces accessible only through daily guided tours.
